Thanks, my worry is that it's going to be 100 degrees.

Hopefully they will let you in with several waters. Or maybe strategically placed upon you. You (plural use) used to sneak in pot, now it's water. What song(s) do you want to hear?

Deb is seeing them the prior night in CT.

btw- Totally off tangent, but they shut down the Rocky Hill ferry for no rational reason. It was the oldest continually used ferry in the US. We use it. And they are closing the Arrigoni Bridge because it is unsafe for use. Imagine Rt. 9 at the lights in Middletown @ rush hour? Wow. Big Time.

To cross the river you have Hartford, East Haddam or Old Saybrook, south of Hartford. (The Chester ferry is gone.) Officials are talking about a 5 year timetable to replace the Arrigoni. More excellent governance by our home state.

Most venues now let you bring in one unopened bottle of water.

I'm surprised how many dogs got into the Bethel Woods show this past Saturday.

Oh, as to what I'd like to hear, Mountain Song is very high on my list. And seriously I'm so happy when they "let Phil sing," that is one thing you can't deny is great about Furthur! They let Phil sing! Is it actually possible his singing has improved? I think so.

The Cumberland from the 16th was excellent.

I'm on a Birdsong kick at the moment, so I guess a Birdsong would be nice. And last year, Blues for Allah was superb, wouldn't mind hearing that again.

I really love how they do Brown Eyed Women:

John Sings the verses and the chorus, except Phil sings "and the old man is getting on".


You are really going to love the stage backdrop screen this time around. Smuggle in a camcorder if you can.

This is a rather crappy recording of Jones Beach the other night. The wind was whipping, and there were far fewer tapers than the night before up in Bethel. The Jam>Dark Star were unbelievably insane in person.

(despite the time on the embedded player, the DS clocks in at about 21 min.)

Honestly it's Bob I'm worried about :) my husband and son find the eye drops story extremely funny, too. I'm actually starting to think maybe they should cancel or postpone - I will seriously be a little worried if it is as hot as they say it will be (supposed to be 100 degrees here Thurs. and Fri., and not much better Sat.). It doesn't sound like much fun and I would hate to be at the show where Bob or Phil has a heat stroke.

I don't know about this ferry. When I lived in Middletown it was a sleepy place.

What I'm worried about at the Mann is having only one port-a-john again this year outside in the parking area, like they had last year.

Yes, quite frankly that has crossed my mind as well. Is it not pathetic that we both remember THAT PARTICULAR PORTAJOHN a year later!! and last year was not particularly hot if I'm recalling correctly, it was warm but pleasant and the odor was still horrific. I very much hope they have thought this through a bit better this year.

I'm not ashamed to admit I pooped in a bag in the back of my minivan last year at the Mann. You gotta do what you gotta do!
